you dont need to fill it unless your car is leaking the engine coolant. you will see it under your car if its leaked. its green and youll know it leaked. other than that you dont need to fill it. you should always replace your coolant after 3 years or depending on how you drive.

its low because the fluid is or was in use. when you open your hood to check your coolant fluid level after having the car parked for a little, you'll see that its back in the container.
It works 180 degrees opposite of that.

When the engine is warm, it will have more coolant in the tank (expansion).
When the engine is cool, it will have less coolant in the tank (contraction).
